Our focus is on optical, opto-mechanical, electro-optical and photonic systems that could utilize a variety or sources, components and detectors including the human eye. We have a strong background in all aspects of geometrical, physical, and quantum optics. However, we primarily utilized Zemax/Optic Studio, Python, MATLAB and SOLIDWORKS; however, we have experience and can obtain access to other tools like FRED, CODE V, TracePro and other photonic and stray light tools as required for specific projects either directly or through partners. We do not provide images of many of our designs because most are proprietary, so the best thing to do is provide details of your project and we can provide a proposal or lead you in the right direction.
We can help you make the right initial with your optical system design to put you on the path towards success, and we can help you better partition your efforts correctly between optics, mechanics, electronics, software, and better algorithm development. Many times you do not need a fully custom lens system designed from scratch, and that can save you significant time and money. However, in other cases due to size, volume, cost or other constraints you need a fully customized design. Determining the correct path and making course corrections quickly are key to your product development, so bring us in early.
Most customers initial think they just need a lens or lens system designed, and we do that except for a couple very specialized niche's where there are better options. However, where we excel is by developing a holistic approach that provides not only specific lens designs but a system architecture that can be produced in a timely manner for a reasonable cost.
If your project is stuck, then an outside expert can significantly help you get on the correct path. Sometimes it will make sense to keep us on for the rest of the project, while in other cases you just need a minor course correction. Many times the solution is obvious once you know the answer. The sooner we are brought into the project, the easier and quicker the course correction.
